Project Title: Address through theoretical analysis and simulation studies how lipid bilayer membranes depend on the collective non-covalent lipid-lipid interactions, lipid-particulate interactions, and particulate-particulate interactions. Such investigations could offer new insights into how membranes of red blood cells are organized to maintain integrity when subject to strong stresses from blood flow.
